Tadpole Update...after one week in their foster home

Here are two of our six frisky tadpoles! They've changed noticeably in the past week.When we caught them, they looked like little black bulbs with a wiggly tail. They weren't very lively, and they were so small that it was difficult to see them hiding on the bottom among all the rocks. Now, since they've grown, it's not difficult to find them. Their activity level has picked up, and it almost seems as though they're playing together at times. Their color has gone from blackish to very frog-like spotty greenish brown with pinkish-red coloring for some organs inside, and you can almost just imagine a little frog all bunched up in their little bulky tadpole body! Look at their cute faces! This has been a fun process for the kids to watch!

What a neat project that turned out to be! I can't wait to see what they look like in another 2 weeks!
